JUL-board 2019

Merit Guldemondt (Chair)
With great pleasure I studied modern history in Leiden and International Relations in Utrecht. Since a few months I have been working at Administration and Central Services as a communications officer, where I am currently focusing on the HR Next Level Project. You won’t find me without music on, I love singing, concerts, city trips, and enjoying the Burgundian lifestyle with family and friends. I look forward to organizing new activities, where I hope to see and speak you all!

Judith Jongenelen (Secretary)
I have been working at the Housing Office, part of Student and Educational Affairs, since 2014. With a small team I arrange accommodation for international students in Leiden or The Hague. This job combines practice and policy, which I enjoy, and no two days are the same. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Film and Literary Studies at Leiden University – guessing my hobbies should not be difficult! I also enjoy hiking, listening to podcasts (I often combine the two), and browsing through second-hand shops in search of vintage dresses and inexpensive books.

Nikie Veld (Treasurer)
In February 2017 I started working for Leiden University at Student and Educational Affairs. I started at the scholarships department and transferred to International Relations last year. Before I started working at Leiden University I studied in Leiden for multiple years and have proudly signed my name in het zweetkamertje (sweatroom). In my free time I read a lot of books, I travel and love baking pies. Besides my obligations as treasurer, I will also focus on activities that include snacks.

Sjoerd Dobbinga (Marketing and communication)
I started working for the university in December 2018, as a research assistant at the Brain and Development Lab at the institute of Psychology. I’m not completely new to the university though. Just like my fellow board members I studied here in Leiden. As part of the new JUL board I will keep you updated on the activities that we organize, so keep an eye on your inbox and our social media accounts!

In my free time I enjoy creative activities: from photography to pottery, I do it all. Besides my creative pursuits I enjoy travelling and good food, especially desserts!
